Mothers California Gold Clay Bar Kit

On my way home today, I picked up this clay kit from Mothers. Going to give it a try tomorrow...you know...to see how well it does on my truck.

Are there others who can vouch for this product? I'm kind of anxious to see the results.

Absolutely. Any time you clay the vehicle, you're going to see/feel some results. Especially if the vehicle has some age to it, sits outside 24/7 and has never been done before. After washing real well, go ahead and run the clay over the surface (use light to medium pressure), using a generous amount of lube. I like to rewash the vehicle after claying, but some will just use a quick detailer to clean off the surface. Then just throw on a coat of wax and you're good to go

Thanks for your input.

I have an 02 Prerunner Dbl cab, blk prl in color. The truck and paint job are still in fantastic shape minus a few scratches and two small shopping cart dings (less than 1/2 the size of a dime)....so...I'm expecting a good result.

Hope you know the clay bar won't remove those scratches and dings. It removes minor blemishes and paint contamination.

i've used both Mother's and Maguire's...both offered similar results. i think you get a wee-bit more clay with the Maguires, IIRC.

make sure to fold that clay often. don't make circles with it...go in straight lines, back & forth motion.

claying is sweet. i always fondle my truck after i'm through.

anyone use the Turtle Wax Liquid Clay? i'm interested to hear about it.

big difference!

i used that same kit (mother's california gold) two weekends ago on my truck and it worked great! i'm pretty sure it was the first time it had been done -- what a difference!

unfortunately the smooth and clear shine only lasted about 12 hours because i took it up to the mountains to snowboard. such is life, i guess! but it's a great product!

The mothers clay bar is awesome! I've like it better than the maguires. It seems to take off contaminants easier and faster. I've used both products side by side and the mothers is the one I would choose to buy when I need to clay my truck.
